I tried making the case with Bono on Friday that a downtown hospital will benefit Herkimer County because Rt 5 dumps into downtown Utica.... [redaction, and continues with...],

On Monday, August 17, 2015, Picente, Anthony wrote: Agree with all. Spoke today with Matt Ossenfort from Montgomery and Bono as well. Matt gets it Bono does not. They are all hung up on getting their fair share. I made it clear that they would not be screwed but they needed to have projects with 5 to 1 leverage and strategies to get them there. I asked Jim if he had the opportunity for a hospital would he say no or would he bond for 80 million? Dealing with small minds and vision and no view of the future. Tony

"As I understand it, Ms. Dicks’ husband is a board member of MVHS, the mega conglomerate of the original 4 main hospitals of the city, Childrens, Faxton, St. Elizabeth and St. Luke’s. Although it is not a direct line, there appears to be a conflict of interest for the largest and wealthiest donor fund in the area to throw in with the monster who wants to eat Main Street."
